The weatherman sent us rain for our June BBQ. While it would have been nice to see clear skies and enjoy the evening outside, I can only hope that the weather made some cop’s night easier by keeping the lid on a demonstration or protest somewhere.
I want to give a special “thank you” to the Haverstraw Elks Lodge, and to House Chairman Lenny Vitale, for very quickly salvaging our night and setting up the inside room so we could have our meeting.
A “job well done” to Dennis Dodrill (and his committee) for running the Tour De Force Bowling Night Fundraiser at Hi Tor Lanes, in West Haverstraw, on July 20th. The dedicated cyclists will be embarking on a 4 day ride from the West Point Military Academy to Annapolis, Maryland, to raise funds for the families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. We wish them a safe and successful ride.
The weatherman provided a great night for the Shields at Boulders Stadium, in Pomona, on July 26th. We were all spoiled as we watched the ball game from an air conditioned room with a very fine spread of food. I want to thank John Pinto for putting together another great event.
The Rockland County Shields Golf Outing is right around the corner (September 10th) at the Philip J Rotella Golf Course in Haverstraw. This event makes our scholarship program possible. Contact Mike Higgins for more information. If you don’t golf, that’s ok, we can use the extra help.
REMEMBER TO THANK OUR VETERANS AND FIRST RESPONDERS
